tv   Key Capitol Hill Hearings  CSPAN  September 5, 2015 6:00am-7:01am EDT

6:00 am
>> on the road to the white house, governor john kasich spoke at a house party in new hampshire. [applause] [applause] gov. kasich: we will make this like a jump rope. salt and pepper, however that went. can we give a big round of applause for the host and hostess? [applause] i understand that everyone here will get a canned ham when you leave. they have a beautiful -- how about this? when i'm president everybody will have a backyard like this. [laughter] ok? listen, i was here years ago and he told a story about this sled dog, i did go sled racing and i thought i was going to drown.
6:01 am
but a story about that, i was in this house and i was talking to this lady and we were talking and standing at the sink and it was going great. i thought, i have myself a town captain here. there is no question about this. then after about 20 minutes she , looked at her watch and said, "when do you think the candidate will get here?" that's when i knew it was time to go back to ohio. a little bit different this time. so i want to thank everyone here for coming. i will do a short bio. so then i will take your questions. i do come from pittsburgh. my father and his father was a coal miner. my mother was a very smart lady, but very undereducated. she was highly opinionated. and her mother lived with us off and on and she could barely speak english. the town where i grew up, i
6:02 am
don't remember except for one guy who lived catty corner to us. i never remember seeing a white shirt. everyone in this town had a blue-collar, i never remember seeing a white shirt. everyone in my hometown was a democrat. we do not have republicans living there. it was a conservative, god-fearing common sense town. if the wind blew the wrong way, people found themselves out of work. i was talking to agent him and -- i was talking to a gentleman here whose father was the postmaster in downtown pittsburgh, apparently had a lot of say in the area. the reason i bring that up is -- i was never aware of us getting special things. you know, we never got a ticket to go see the world series. we never got a ticket to go see the playoff games. i can't hardly remember whether
6:03 am
or not we even got a ticket to go see the steelers play. because we just didn't have those connections. i have not talked much about this, but i learned as a kid to kind of fight for the underdog. i learned as a kid to stick up for people who a lot of times people don't stick up for. and that is burned in my soul. that does not mean that people who are successful need to be torn down. i can remember my father saying to me, johnny, we do not hate the rich, we want to be the rich. and so my values were shaped in that little town. and i really carry that through my whole lifetime. my mother was very opinionated. and i learned a lot from her, because she was someone who really -- she would shake it up.
6:04 am
she was a change agent and it is a shame she didn't have an education, because of what she could have done. and my parents always kind of planted -- i will tell you an interesting story. the one thing i wanted to be, i wanted to play on the little league team. i was a pretty good ballplayer, but i was a little skinny guy who would be easy to ignore. when you try out for the baseball team, you put a number on your back. it is not like baseball teams today where everybody gets a trophy. back then, you have a number on your back and run out into the field. when i think back, my glove was bigger than me. and so what would happen, you go out there for batting practice, go out to the field. you go for a day or two. then the coaches would write your number down and they would call you and tell you that you are on the team. i never got a call.
6:05 am
i never got a call. and i said to my father, dad, a lot of kids at the school yard, they are on baseball teams, but they do not play as well as i do. but their dads are coaches or know somebody, so could you talk to somebody and get me on the team? you know what my dad said, johnny you will earn it. we are not going to owe anybody anything. think about that for a second. what a powerful statement that was to an 11-year-old boy. that is how i have conducted myself. if you support me, give me something, it does not get you anything special or it i will know you and i will respect you and listen to you. but, nobody calls the tune on john kasich. nobody. maybe the lord, but nobody.
6:06 am
no doubt my wife -- [laughter] other than that. but when you combine the sense of sticking up for people who have not always been heard and you combine that with a sense of people should have the right to grow and become something big. johnny we do not hate the rich, we want to be the rich. and then about my mother being independent, having an independent voice. it has made me in some ways a different kind of public official. i moved to ohio and i went to ohio state. i do not mince my words -- i was in michigan today and i didn't tell them that i went to ohio state -- well, i did. they know. [laughter] a lot of wonderful things
6:07 am
happen. a lot of you have heard my stories how i started life. i feel like i have been struck by lightning and i feel as though i have had some blessings to be able to take the skills i have and use them to try to do some good. because my mother and father always said, make sure that wherever you are the place is better because you are there. so i am -- i have all these -- always subscribed to that. i was elected to office at a very young man. i started running about 25 years. i knew no one in my senate district. the legislature in ohio is, we have 11.5 million people, i represented 350,000, which is almost the same number of american congressmen. i didn't know anybody when i ran. i didn't know anybody in the republican party. tell you the truth i had been
6:08 am
, working in the legislature. but you know what i did? i recruited, like the women standing here with these shirts on, i would go to their homes and talk to them and ask if they would help me. we created a volunteer army. which is what i like to say when i run for office, this is not a campaign, this is a movement. and i won. it was a shocking win. nobody would have expected me to win, because i ran against a guy who was a household word. and i got in there. i was 26. the youngest in the office in ohio history. i served for four years. there were a couple things going on. one was i was in the minority for two years. and then my third year i was in the majority. but the house was democrats, so i had to figure out, am i a republican or a ohio in. first and foremost, a conservative. i didn't want to raise taxes, i wanted to make the government as small as i could.
6:09 am
it made total sense to me. that comes from my blue-collar background. where things are big -- if things are big, they do not work well. and so i had to learn how to work with people in the other party to get things done. and after those four years iran for congress. in 1976, i was working as an aid in the legislature before i was elected. and i was a fan of ronald reagan. i mean a rabid fan of ronald reagan. i mean, i went door-to-door in columbus ohio, like we were running out of time. at midnight, they were furious at me. i said look, you can be mad at me, but sign this petition to get ronald reagan on the ballot. one senator i was working for was in the reagan trust and he called me one day and said i'm really busy out here, can you fly out to kansas city, i need help. i got there and i went into the trailer with these people who
6:10 am
are trying to get delegates to vote for reagan. when i walked in, they said that somebody didn't show up and we wonder if you can manage five delegations in the country to help reagan become president. i have no idea what that meant, but i said absolutely. i can do it. and so i had an opportunity at that convention to travel with ronald reagan. delegationsgo to and i was able to introduce him. i was 24 years old. you know? i was steeped in that from the beginning. i ran for congress after that state senate effort. let me not leave this out. i get into the majority and republicans want to raise taxes. so i'm against it. i had made a promise that it would not support a tax increase. so my colleagues are to call me names in the newspaper. i have never told the stories
6:11 am
before. and they were calling me irresponsible. i said he was a calming irresponsible, i will write my own budget. that was the first time. i wrote my own budget, i was 28 years old. i wrote a budget for ohio to close the deficit so we would not have to raise taxes. so the budget, it gets defeated, obviously but i had learned , something there. if you know the budget and you know how government works and you have more knowledge than anybody else. i run for congress and i run with reagan in 1982, i am the only republican to defeat an incumbent democrat that year. and iran on the reagan tax cuts and smaller government and to be able to defeat the soviet union as president reagan used to say, his philosophy on the soviet union, we win, they lose. ok? it is simple. i go down there and i start my service on armed services
6:12 am
committee, learning about the defense. i became a defense reformer because i found the wrenches and hammers. some of you remember that. it was a little uncomfortable to be a defense reformer and a republican, but it was the right thing to do. six years in, i got to the budget committee. i went to my first meeting and i didn't like what was going on. i am a conservative. i want a balanced budget. that year, my first year, i offer my own budget and the vote on that was 405, no and 30, yes. i thought i was doing great. i offered a budget year after year. i will explain a little bit to you about how this works. because my great friend, john, i love john and kitty.
6:13 am
i would not be running for president if john had not come to be and said you should do this. it would not happen. back in those days i became the senior republican in the budget committee and then the chairman. we broke up into groups. i would take 4-5 members of the committee and i would assign them to area to research and fix. and then i would take another group and ask them. here is where the ground rules. you need to look at all of these programs and if they do not work we will get rid of them. if you can work, we can fix them. if they can be privatized, we will privatize them and i want you to think outside the box. don't think like you work in the government, think like you work in business and come up with a better mousetrap. here is the other ground rule. nobody, but nobody, has influence over you. you can talk to people, consult with people, but at the end of the day, it is an intellectually honest exercise. let the chips fall where they
6:14 am
may. and we did that. then in 1997, we landed on the first balanced budget since man had walked on the moon, we pay down the largest amount of the modern debt that was held by the public and we cut taxes on capital gains. and the economy was doing great. i was also on the defense committee, so i had to make decisions about war, resources that america has, and i worked with some of the greatest minds in the modern history of the u.s. from john tower, to barry goldwater, these were giants, this was the time when republicans and democrats work together because we were all americans first and it was a great experience. so i left washington, i thought i am done with this, getting out of town, i wanted to go to the private sector. so i worked at lehman brothers as an investment banker, i traveled all over.
6:15 am
a seminal experience for me. i learned how businesses work and i really learned about how decisions get made. and then you remember what a big television star i was at fox news. i mean i was huge. , and i did a bunch of other things and then i felt called back into government. i told my wife i was thinking about going back and she said, that is ok with me. she said, you will be sleeping on the porch for the next four years. then she finally understood, i tell you what, the lord has a purpose for all of us. maybe you do not think that way, maybe you are a humanist, and if you are you have a purpose for living, improving the lives of people around you. i could not look the other way, so i went and ran for governor and i was the first person to beat an incumbent in over 30 years. for somebody who i never run statewide and had been out of
6:16 am
politics for 10 years nobody , like that had been elected like that against an incumbent for 96 years. it was a good cosmic. accomplishment. i went to work with the same philosophy i had in washington. we were a billion dollars in the hole, the credit was going on the train, people were feeling hopeless. we put this program together, after my first year i had a 28% approval rating, was the most unpopular governor in america. have to work hard to be that unpopular. then we started to feel the sun come up. 4.5 years later, we are no longer in debt, we have a $2 billion surplus, we cut taxes by almost $5 billion, the largest amount by any sitting governor in america. we are up over 330,000 jobs and our credit is strong. another thing i want to tell you, when we do better, everybody should do better.
6:17 am
if you live in the shadows, if you are mentally ill, we are going to help you. we do not want you to be put in jail or in prison where we have 10,000 mentally ill people in our state and in every shade across the country. we need to help them get on their feet and become productive. if you are drug addicted, the revolving door of prison and drug dealer is it no more. we are going to treat you and rehab you and get you on your feet. if you are the working poor, we do not want you spending your time in the emergency room where it is more expensive, we want you to get decent health care and make sure that if you are the working poor, you continue to get pay raises without losing childcare. if you are developmentally
6:18 am
disabled, we will mainstream you. if you are in the minority community, we will help you create entrepreneurship. because i think being a conservative means opportunity for everybody. somehow, somebody has put conservatives in a box. you know being a conservative is , about government as a last resort and not a first resort and it is about letting people keep more in their pockets rather than sending it to a faraway place. it is about school choice, it is about many things, about running america from the bottom up. but i think that conservatives are also about having a big heart. about giving people an opportunity to live out their god-given purpose. that is what opportunity is about in america. i can tell you that that is what is about. one other thing i can tell you, tonight it is time that , americans stop complaining about things. we live in an unbelievable
6:19 am
country. do we have our problems? why don't we get of tomorrow morning and count our blessings for having been born in the u.s. ok we have problems, but they , can be solved and they can be solved because when we hang together, we have real strength, real purpose. if i become president, there are like three things i would like to focus on. right away one is the issue of , economic growth. any public official that is worth their salt have to create an environment for job creation. that means we have to deregulate our society, we have to give companies incentives to move profits back from europe so they invest in america. we need to give incentives to invest in plants and equipment so workers can have tools and be productive and get higher wages. we need to work on workforce training so we train people for jobs that exist and we need to be in a position where we look
6:20 am
at the tax code and simplify it. so many things we need to do to create economic growth and a lot of it is attitude. secondly, we need to rebuild our defense. but we have to reform our pentagon. it used to be, it would take 5-6 years to research development and employ a weapons system, now takes over 20 years. how about if i told you you will build a house, but then you will move in in 20 years. we need to reform that building and rebuild our military strength. frankly we are leaders of the , world, whether we know it the leader. finally, i think we need to reignite citizenship. what do i mean by that? i think we as americans and as members of western civilization need to realize that we need to lead a life bigger than
6:21 am
ourselves. that is what the one campaign is about. you lead a life bigger than you. and secondly we all need to be centers of justice, centers of healing, so we can take care of our communities. so we can have a healthier society. you know, it does not sound like a campaign speech does it? i hope it sounds bigger, this is like rekindling the flame in our country. we can do it. it is not that hard. sometimes the politicians will not be able to get it, but the people do. i remember when ronald reagan said you write letters to tip o'neill, and he ended up having more letters on his desk then in that movie miracle on 34th street.
6:22 am
let us rebuild the defense, let's reignite citizenship and let's be a leader of the world. that is my story and i am sticking to it. [applause] yes, in the back. bright yellow shirt. >> thank you governor, excellent words. they really do resonate. no question. let me tell you i met with nine of the candidates, honestly, those words also resonated. they all have their own story. all powerful messages. and we appreciate that. how does governor kasich separate himself from the pack, differentiate himself to really rise above that pack and be memorable for this audience and audiences all over the u.s. -- what is there that is special or unique about john that you
6:23 am
really want us to take home? i am a marketing guy. gov. kasich: first of all, i am just who i am. i am not going to put two-cones in my mouth or take my shirt off, i will not do that. my approach is that i will do the best i can and you have to listen and if you like it, great. if you do not like it, i will cry for 10 minutes and then my life will be ok. we will see. one thing i have that i think is unique -- i have done all the things i have talked about. this is not about what i might do. or what i think we ought to do. do you ever notice that when people run for president they never keep promises. they make promises that are unrealistic or that cannot be kept. we talk about balancing a budget, i have balanced many of them. we talk about experience in defense, have that.
6:24 am
we talk about understanding what it means to be an executive in a very big state where their challenges every day, i have lived it. i think today people want us to acknowledge the anxieties that exist in this country, and i grew up with them, but at the end of the day people want the airplane to be landed. i think the most powerful thing i can offer is to look at my past, because that will tell you what will happen in the future. and so, you know it is , experience, it is results, it is record. i think that is about as well as i can do. thank you. >> the story you told about your upbringing is amazing, but it is one that is so inaccessible to folks today, kids who were born into a place like you had, they may not have those opportunities today.
6:25 am
what needs to happen at a policy level close the opportunity gap? twoas you talk about, the community. gov. kasich: i think the american dream is alive today. i do not think that my story is particularly unique, everyone has a story about who they were. what is it we need? first of all, we need a growing economy. that means you have opportunity. if you knock on doors that have no jobs, it is hard to get a job. right? so we need a growing economy and i do not think that people in washington have understood how you grow and economy. this is the weakest recovery since world war ii. it has not been good. secondly, i also think that i am a big believer in mentoring. i think when you tell somebody
6:26 am
when they are young, what their potential is and encourage them for their dreams, it is amazing how you create a determination and will to do it. i mean, there are some things i consider to be very important to teach our kids. five things. one, personal responsibly. the dog ate my homework went out in the fifth grade. you need to accept it. second, resilience, you get knocked down, pick yourself up. i love the line by michael vick, the quarterback, you only have one chance to make a good second impression. i love that. thirdly, the issue of empathy, it moves us to care about people who we want to see move up the ladder. and fourthly, it is family, family is so important. if we do not have family, we do not ha america. right? and we need to reemphasize and
6:27 am
understand that important. and faith. have to believe that everybody on this earth was created for purpose. we have to figure out what that purpose is and what your skills are and apply them. i do not think that people who come from where i come from or here don't have an opportunity to move up, but you cannot take no for an answer. you know how many times i have been knocked down in my lifetime, my family said, pick yourself up and move on. the key is, when you knock on the door enough, they get so aggravated that they will let you in. we need to remind young people of that. we believe in local control of education. we need to make sure that schools are performing. not based on some title or headline. how are they doing, how they compare with the rest of the country. we need to give young people
6:28 am
skills. and you have to break the agrarian model. everyone learns differently. say i like math, if i can go work for this guy for three hours a week and understand what his system does, i will get energized. when i was a kid i used to go to court and listen to lawyers argue, surprise, now i am a politician. right? but the fact is that having a flexible education -- for those who do not want the academic approach, we should have vocational education, so we can meet the skills of where people are. a growing economy, better education, it can do attitude, resilience, and a little bit of faith. that is what i would say would work. yes? right here. >> specifically how are you , going to fix the affordable care act? kasich: it does not do
6:29 am
what it was supposed to do. lower the price of health care. in my state, we have taken medicaid -- we have a program in ohio where we think the primary care doctor should be the shepherd. we should have a medical home run by primary care doctors. who can move us through the challenges that we have with our health. dealing with insurance companies and providers. now we have a program in columbus, we have a children's hospital has an agreement with the insurance companies. they are looking at asthma. if we can keep you healthy without putting you in the hospital, that is great. isn't it? secondly, it means the hospital gets less revenue, but it means the insurance covering gets more profit. guess what, they share the benefit of keeping that kid
6:30 am
healthy and out of the hospital. that is how it should run health care. it should not be based on quantity, but quality. you go to the hospital tonight, comforted they will give you 10 , tests when you only need to. wo. and nobody cares, because a third party is paying for it. we need quality medicine. we need to move to a system that is designed to reward doctors to keep us healthy, rather than treating us when we are sick. we will have a better health care system and we will have more control. we will let the free market incident b incentivize this. yes? >> i wanted to ask you about the team you will build when you become president. what type of person for being the vice president, how he -- how you gather folks around
6:31 am
you to run all this? you live in -- gov. kasich: you live in new hampshire? will you be available? that is a very big part of being a leader. first of all, if you come in to look at problems that we have, it is not unusual to find 20 people in a room with me. what i encourage is open dialogue. tell me what is on your mind. come in here and be creative. when you are president, you have to have good advisors and a good cabinet. they should be dedicated to job creation and common sense. and you have to have people in your inner circle that you trust that are not subjected to group thinking. you need to be out there. one thing i would like to do i think you can run a better program to deliver health care
6:32 am
to the poor can it -- then i can -- then they can in washington. as president, i would like to travel to all legislatures around the country on a regular basis and hear what is working. what is unique in massachusetts that you could learn here, or use here. best practices always work. we should give people the reasons to better serve the public. then when it comes to defense, you have to have military leaders that tell you the truth and don't care for their own little rice bowl. what do i mean by that? i have a friend who was once the
6:33 am
coo of the cia and when i ask him questions, his answers are counterintuitive to what i think you will give me. you need to have direct answers that make sense, that are not reflecting just your own personal gain or interest. and then you need civilian leaders who are experts in defense. at the end of the day, the president has to have the right instincts, the right experience, the right gut. that is how it works. you, i was al congressman, i am a governor. not a lot of difference, just day and night. i am constantly being faced with decisions, i have a good staff. at the end of it, at the end of the day, it is on me. at the and of the day, it is on me and then you judge how i do by the results.
6:34 am
it is not theory. it is not theory, it is results. do you make mistakes, of course you do. but you keep it moving in the right direction. and you respect the people that put you in office. when i get elected i am a ceo basically, and i assemble a team to run the companies best as i can. ok listen, they are telling me i have to go. here is what i would say. if you're interested, check us out. if you want to do something that this, not as magnificent, that is fine. ok, maybe we can come to your house. i am doing town halls. i would really like you to help you. appear, i will say this about new hampshire. this is a great system. people say, why do you like it so much there? i said, two congressional seats, you can -- and people will look at you and listen to you and they will look in your eyes and feel what you are all about.
6:35 am
if they like you, they will reward you. if they do not, then they don't and you didn't connect and it wasn't the right time. when i was here 16 years ago, they said, we like you, but it is not your time. so this time maybe, maybe he can make it my time.
6:36 am
>> how are your daughters? you talk about the month time. >> good. how old are you? >> 17 years old. >> you are a volunteer? i have only thing you hundred times. you think i would know you. how is it your dad? >> he is well. i think you will be coming. my mom is here. >> thank you. how is school? >> is great. i have an event tonight. you can sign you know to get me how of my history homework. >> i got the autograph now. >> we have a long road. >> good point. >> hello governor. >> i know you, alan. i decided. -- i just saw you.

6:43 am

6:46 am
and then guess what, they were killed in a car accident. many years later. by a drunk driver. but i became a better man because of that, as sad as it is. one of our young men in our department got a call from his mother whose grandfather did not wake up last night. he is 22 years old, he was crying. i said, it is ok good. >> that is the way to go. >> you are absolutely right. >> you know, for me it would be like taking an apple off the tree on the 18th hole, once i be my friend -- beat my friend in golf. believe me. >> hello, senator. i was a junior staffer so we didn't interact when we were on the -- together.
